The story of one man who believed he could make a difference, and in doing so, stood up to the entire United State government. A great story about how the American rule of law works and how one man can bring change the course of human events.

80 yrs later - The Deep State still rules DC
Eighty years after this film was released, the control of the Deep State in the Swamps of DC continues to grip our government. It took the courage of a nonpolitician, like Mr. Smith in the movie, to confront the country's mega machines, including the fake media on an every day basis. It will take the strength of all citizens to stand together in unity to preserve the true American values.
Remember how this film was labeled "criminal" by Joe Kennedy? There are numerous parallelisms!

Mr. Smith (Keith Smith, high school teacher)
This is one of the greatest classic American films ever made. I show it to my students (high school seniors in civics class) when we learn about the legislative branch. The film encpsulates the most important things that I hope my students take away from the series of lessons on the subject.

Learn from Our Past
This movie should be shown to every teenager in every high school. Our country is need of another Mr. Smith.

Mr. Smith is regarded as foolish by those with worldly wisdom, but he makes more important statements than any other character! This movie is a good reminder for us about patriotism, love, and integrity!

Lessons not learned
It saddens me greatly that great movies like this, made in 1939 can only be found, free of charge, after much searching. The very statements that this movie makes about greed, corruption still exist today, after 77 years. It would also seem that huge corporations, rather then offer a 77 year old movie, with such a powerful statement, to the public for free, they would charge for it. Thus, many that would benefit from the message of the movie will not see it, nor shall they ever.
I do hope it stays up on Archive.org and that more men, women, and children would gain inspiration from its message if they can find it. I would not be surprised if its contents were pulled because of copyright problems arising out of a system which would suppress such a wonderful movie, to gain profit. We have all lost free tv as true freedom staggers against the surge of capitalism. May this nations eyes awaken soon, before it is to late.
